I normally don’t like posting recipes I haven’t tested more than once. I know we live in a world now where content is key and we’re all supposed to post a ton of it. But when it comes to my recipes, I’ve always been very quality over quantity kind of gal. While I may be slow as a turtle to get recipes posted, the good news is, the recipes you do see have been tested and I will never post one that’s not knock your socks off delicious! Luckily, sometimes a recipe turns out perfectly the first time - this is one of them so I’m sharing it! 8 ingredients, under 30 minutes, and restaurant quality delicious! When I made this the other night, Tres’ reaction was, “This is one of the best dishes you’ve created in awhile.”
1 delicata squash - cut in half lengthwise, seeds removed, sliced 1/4 inch
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon chai seasoning
Kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper
3 tablespoons butter
2 Halibut filets
Heat your oven to 400 degrees. On a baking pan, toss the squash together with the olive oil, maple syrup, chai, and about 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Roast for 12 to 15 minutes or until tender and golden.
While the squash is cooking, heat the butter in a pan over medium heat and let sit without moving until it starts to get slightly golden. Increase the heat to high and wait for the butter to start smoking - don’t be alarmed if it starts to get really dark, it won’t burn once the fish hits the pan. Once smoking, add the fish and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until cooked through and flaky. Plate the squash, top with the fish, and drizzle brown butter over the entire dish.
